Program PhD Students
Emily B. Kennedy
I work in the Department of Biology, advised by Dr. Peter Niewiarowski. I am an environmentalist, interested in biomimicry as an economically appealing conservation opportunity. Specifically, I’m fascinated by the study of shapes and sequences in nature to inspire designs which are both aesthetically pleasing and efficient. Before enrolling in Akron’s PhD program, I was working full-time in the Water/Natural Resources and Corporate Marketing departments of an environmental consulting firm in Maryland.
2011, B.A. International Relations (Minor: Environmental Studies). Colgate University.
